Bournemouth School gets festive
Trees, lights, paper chains, tinsel and daring Christmas jumpers and hats. All things appearing as we approach the end of the autumn term . The tree in the foyer, as gargantuan as ever, is becoming more and more deeply entrenched in an ever-growing mound of gifts for the Salvation Army, which is always a gratifying site. Diligently crafted paper snowflakes descend from the ceiling of the library; the canteen is dressed up in its characteristic blue and silver tinsel; a small acknowledgement to the time of year has been made with another tree in the corner of the commonroom and Mr. Heyes is wearing a suitably festive tie. Some particularly rebellious Sixth Formers are parading around the corridors with large faces of reindeers emblazoned between their lapels, and there have even been sightings of festive hats. Although a Christmassy atmosphere is diffusing through the corridors, the break is no doubt a welcome period of relaxation for many, especially the Year 11s who have just completed their mock exams.
